ICYMI: McConnell’s Rare Moment of Honesty


“Not a single member of my party voted for it. So you’re gonna get a lot more money. I didn’t vote for it, but you’re gonna get a lot more money.”

Frankfort, KY — In a rare moment on Tuesday, Senator McConnell told the truth during remarks to the Murray-Calloway Economic Development Corporation and the Murray-Calloway County Chamber of Commerce.

According to reports from the event:


In a speech to the Murray-Calloway Economic Development Corporation and the Murray-Calloway County Chamber of Commerce in Murray, Kentucky, McConnell (R-KY) acknowledged that the American Rescue Plan, which he and all Republicans in Congress voted against, had provided a massive infusion of cash to the state and local governments.”

McConnell reminded the audience that neither he nor any member of his party supported the relief:


“Not a single member of my party voted for it. So you’re gonna get a lot more money. I didn’t vote for it, but you’re gonna get a lot more money. Cities and counties in Kentucky will get close to seven or eight hundred million dollars.

If you add up the total amount that will come into our state: $4 billion. That’s twice what we sent in last year.”

McConnell’s rare moment of honesty made headlines across the country:
